GREAT for sick babies! (and adults)

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

As an adult with children, the entire house uses this product. The Vicks Baby type is just as good as the normal kind.

This stuff is great for sick people. I put it on kids' feet before bed or on their chest, then cover with clothing to reduce mess. It absorbs into their skin and has zero side affects other than them breathing it in and clearing up airways. And unlike some gel-like substances, it washes off easily.

Another great use is to put it in an air purifier or humidifier. Mostly water with a touch of this to keep the air smelling well and airways in people open and sinuses clear.

Having had babies, when using this, it seems to be calming, just like the box says. It has elements in it which are safe, yet effective to help soothe and calm baby.

The smell is just the same as the regular kind and has a strong mint-type smell. It is strong but not perfume smelling where it is overwhelming.

For a cheap price this Vicks Rub is good for several uses and is a high quality product. A little bit goes a long ways.

Vicks BabyRub: GREAT for Night

By 

from USA

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

I discovered this recently when my little guy had a cold, and it worked so well for him. This helped him to both feel better and sleep better. I love that this is a way to treat colds and coughs for kids under two, since there aren't many over the counter medications that are safe for children that are so young.

Vicks BabyRub is basically Vicks VaporRub ointment formulated specifically for children between the ages of three months and two years old. It is non-medicated formula. Once they hit two years old, children are able to safely use the regular Vicks RaporRub.

You apply a thick layer to the chest and immediately cover it with clothing the same way with both products.

The BabyRub is so nice because it helps to relieve the cough and congestion symptoms, but with a formula that is safe for little ones. This combined with a humidifier does wonders for those little colds and coughs!

Great, gentle, easy to use product.

By 

from Great Bend, KS

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

Overall this is a great product. It is gentle enough to be used everyday and/or every night. My daughter has learned what it is and how much it helps her and she tries to help me put it on her when she is stuffed up. I use it on my daughters feet with socks or footie pjs so that she has extra to help get her through the night.

Vicks Vaporub For Babies Under Two

By 

from Eagle River, AK

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

If you are the parent or caregiver of a child under the age of two, you are probably as frustrated as I am when it comes to purchasing any kind of medication for babies suffering with a cold or flu. My nearly 11 month old granddaughter is just getting over a cold, and we could find very few medications that were intended for babies her age. A few were recommended for children 2 and up, but most were for children 4 and up.



The pharmacist told me that new regulations are now looking at changing that to age five, due to concerns about parents over dosing, or mixing medications. In any case, we had very few options available to us. One of the products that we did buy, and have been very happy with, is the Vicks Vaporub For Baby.



This reminds me of the Vicks VapoRub I used all through my childhood, but it smells different. The active ingredients in Vicks VapoRub for adults are camphor, eucalyptus oil and menthol. The active ingredients in Vicks VapoRub for Baby are petrolatum, fragrance, aloe extract, eucalyptus oil, lavender oil, and rosemary oil. They seemed more natural and not nearly as strong as menthol and camphor.



We rubbed this on our baby's chest and it really did seem to help relieve her nasal congestion. In fact, she slept almost the entire night through. We elevated her bed slightly and ran the vaporizer in her room, but just my breathing the product opened my nasal passages!



I feel it is best to use the fewest medications on a child as possible, but when you need to use them I personally feel comfortable using this rub.

Great!

By 

from Clearwater, FL

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

Every parent knows that it is a hard thing to see your child sick. It is especially hard when a young child has a cold, because cold medications are no longer recommended for use with young children.

When my toddler son was sick and stuffy with a cold, it was hard to find a solution. My mom suggested Vicks Vapor Rub, but I was afraid to use the adult version. She then told me that Vicks had a safe, baby version, and I immediately tried it.

The smell of Vicks Vapor Rub for Baby is pleasant, and not nearly as strong as the adult version. My son liked having me put on his "medicine." It helped clear his nose and helped him to sleep a lot better at night. And when he sleeps better, I sleep better, too!

Vicks is Great

By 

from Carol Stream, IL

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

I really can appreciate Vicks Vapor Baby Rub and I think it is a great product especially for young children. I had a little toddler who was sick and coughing non-stop. I went to the pharmacy and was recommended to try to Vicks Baby Rub for my child. I was surprised that I wasn't advice to give her anything like a cough syrup. The pharmacist said this was more "natural" than some of those other products. It was easy to rub it onto my daughters chest to give her relief. The odor is milder than the adults which was wonderful. I also didn't have to "fight" her with injesting some type of medicine orally. It was really affordable, too and I know it will last quite some time, too. It was a wonderful recommendation and worked to relieve her symptoms.

Vicks Vapor Rub

By 

from Olive Branch, MS

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

I never let my bathroom drawer do without vicks vapor rub. This is a great product and I use it to help keep my sinus open. But my biggest use is rubbing it on the bottom of my feet at night and pull some socks on and snooze and breath well all night long. I know you are thinking how can this help. Believe me it does help with breathing and sinuses. It also helps keep my feet moisturized. I started putting Vicks vapor rub on my feet over a year ago and now I know when I haven't used it at night. I just take a kleenex and rub it on the bottom of my feet . If you haven't tried vicks on the feet try it a week and see if you don't have better breathing at night. I say go for it I love my vicks up feet.

Vicks baby rub is the best answer for my child's cold

By 

from Magnolia, AR

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

I've used Vicks Vaporub for baby on both of my children since they were babies, and I really love it. My oldest child is now seven years old, and I still use it on him. I really like the fact that it is non-medicated and is a more of a natural way to soothe your baby/child without worrying about any harmful side effects. When my children have just stopped up nose that is keeping them from sleeping, I rub a little of this on their chest, and it provides almost immediate relief. When they have coughing or chest congestion, I find that it actually works better if I rub it on the bottom of their feet and then put warm socks on over it. This usually keeps the cough away for the entire night and allows my children to get much needed rest. Both of my kids have sensitive skin and are allergic to dyes that are in detergent, etc., but the Vicks Baby Rub has never caused any breakouts and they've never had any allergic reactions from using it. The product isn't very expensive, and a little bit of it goes a long way. I would definitely recommend this product to safely treat cough and congestion symptoms of your infant/toddler/child.

The Vicks Baby Rub with Lavendar is the best!

By 

from Lewisville, TX

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

Wait until your baby is at least 3 months old and then lather this stuff on! It is great for stuffy noses and just soothing. With Lavendar added, vicks now is not nearly as harsh as the vicks I grew up on. My boys (2 and 5 years old) love to have me rub this on and even ask for it when the are feeling bad. I put it on their chest, under their pjs or on their back.

Also, be sure to generously cover the bottoms of their feet with vicks and put socks on at night. I heard this tip from a doctor because the skin on your feet is very absorbant, putting vicks here makes it work better and faster. I have tried it myself when sick and felt so much better in the morning.

I love using vicks because it is a safe way to help noses unstuff and bring comfort when little ones are sick. The added lavendar scent is very relaxing and soothing. While I am cuddling them back to sleep, it is nice for me to smell the vicks too!

Vicks VapoRub soothes baby!

By 

from Worcester, MA

Comments about Vicks BabyRub Soothing Aroma Ointment:

When my baby girl was born last year, she was really congested for the first few months. The Doctor said that it's completely normal and it will pass, but the problem was dealing with it and watching my poor baby girl suffer through it. So I tried it all- saline solution, nose aspirators nothing worked for long. She had an awfully hard time sleeping and I just couldn't sit by idly and watch her suffer. She could barely drink her bottles without stopping every few seconds to breathe. So I decided to go back to the store and search for some other type of aid for her.  I found Vicks VapoRub for baby, and I was very excited. I knew how well Vicks VapoRub worked on me and my Fiancé, so I had no doubt that it would work for her. The Baby Vicks VapoRub is different, it has a more subtle menthol scent. It also has other natural oils like Lavender in it to help soothe baby and help calm her. When I got home, I rubbed some onto her chest and for the first time she could breathe through her nose clearly. She drank her whole bottle and fell asleep peacefully. I was so happy to be able to help her! Vicks VapoRub for baby's works very well, it not only clears their stuffy nose and soothes them to sleep, but it also helps make you feel better! I got a better nights sleep knowing she was comfortable!
